Our little ballerinas

Both girls have been working hard in ballet class.  They love it.  We got to see the fruits of their labors at a Christmas recital.  It was so fun to see them up on stage.  Caroline was grinning from ear to ear.  Whitney took her routine seriously and I could see the look of concentration on her face.

Before the recital could start,
the girls had their hair

and make-up done.

Then a little stretching.

And warming up.

Then they took their seats and waited for their turn on stage.

Caroline went first.

We had never seen the whole dance, so we thought this was the end,
but the best was yet to come:

LOVE that ending!!

Then we enjoyed Whit's part in the Waltz of the Snowflakes

She is growing into such a long and lean girl! 

For the finale, all of the students performed
The Twelve Days of Christmas together.


We are so lucky to have Miss Shelley to teach these girls.  
 She is amazing.

 A few more photos of the evening

 So proud of these two!


  1. So cute! They both look like they had a great time.

  2. They did such a great job! AMAZING!

  3. Ballet always makes little girls look so graceful. Some great shots. Next year "Clara" in "Nutcracker".
